Does chicken soup really help fight a cold? We all know the grandmotherly wisdom of serving chicken soup to someone with a cold, but does this particular meal really have medicinal properties? Could slurping up chicken soup save me a trip to the local pharmacy? https://tinyurl.com/yd3gsfdf

It’s long been used to fight alcoholism. But this drug kills cancer, too, study finds. For years, the drug has been given to alcoholics.

If alcoholics drink even a little liquor after taking disulfiram (commercially sold as Antabuse) a tidal wave of unpleasant symptoms will wash over them: Everything from throbbing head pain to vomiting, from chest pain to anxiety. Even choking could result, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, with symptoms starting to crop up within 10 minutes of drinking.

So while disulfiram can’t cure alcoholism, the drug works by making even a drop of alcohol hurt — which hopefully discourages drinking.

But now, scientists say the drug has another promising use: Cancer fighting. http://www.sacbee.com/news/nation-world/world/article188462784.html

Global 'goo-goo': What baby talk sounds like around the world. Professional Village Compounding Pharmacy in Sacramento wanted to pass this along. Very interesting. We all use baby talk when we babble with bundles of joy, but does how we talk to infants vary across cultures?

The answer seems to be yes and no. https://tinyurl.com/y77rjulo

Breathing in Delhi air equivalent to smoking 44 cigarettes a day. It was early on Tuesday morning when residents in the Indian capital of Delhi first began to notice the thick white haze that had descended across the city.

Initially viewed as a mild irritant, by mid-week its debilitating effects were evident to all, as the city struggled to adapt to the new eerie, martian-like conditions brought about by the pollution. https://tinyurl.com/ydbwwqky

Professional Village Compounding Pharmacy in Sacramento wanted to share this. I see this quite often.

One physician had his prescription pad taken away after he repeatedly failed tests assessing his competency.

Another was banned from treating mentally ill inmates and accused of endangering nursing home patients by prescribing excessive dosages of medications. https://tinyurl.com/y8ulny3h

Sorry, cat lovers, there's scientific proof that dogs are smarter. You know that age-old debate about whether dogs are smarter than cats? Well, science now has a definitive answer. It's dogs.

That's the conclusion of an international team of researchers, who found that dogs possess twice the number of neurons than cats. Neurons are cells that process information. And so, the more neurons an animal has, the better its information processing capability, these scientists say. https://tinyurl.com/y8nq4gl5

If Australia’s flu season is any sign, the US is in for a miserable winter, health officials say. In the land down under, where the 2017 flu season is now a wrap, public health officials reported record-high rates of flu, as well as above-average numbers of hospitalizations and deaths. The most common flu strain there was the influenza A virus known as H3N2, and the vaccine given to Australians had an effectiveness of only 10 percent, according to preliminary estimates. https://tinyurl.com/ydcoew8x

Police officer adopts homeless mother's opioid-addicted newborn. Police officers will often tell you there's no such thing as a routine call when you're patrolling the streets.

But when Albuquerque police officer Ryan Holets responded to a possible theft at a nearby convenience store, it had all the hallmarks of a mundane assignment he could quickly clear from the call log.
It didn't turn out that way. https://tinyurl.com/y73jkobj

Do not give your dog bone treats. They could be deadly, the FDA says. It's understandable that you'd want to pamper your pooch. But if you're doing so with bone treats, you're actually risking its life.

That's the warning from the US Food and Drug Administration after it received about 68 reports of dog illnesses tied to such treats. http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/28/health/dog-bone-treats-hazard-trnd/index.html
